It’s been a while since I featured any bands, artists, or creators, so I wanted to take a moment to talk about a short film I recently got to watch, While Mortals Sleep. I won’t get into the plot, for fear of spoilers, but if you’re into horror, sci-fi, or, like me, weird stuff in general, take 14 minutes, sit back and relax, and watch it HERE, on Short of the Week.
A few things that I loved about the film are the retro look, amazing camera work, and soundtrack by Danz CM. Written and directed by Alex Fofonoff, produced by Matthew James Reilly and released by Video Horse, While Mortals Sleep is a fun experience, both dreamy and weird. The first time I watched it, it was on a small screen with a good pair of headphones, which made for a great experience with the audio and music. I’d recommend watching it once with headphones for the experience, but it also looked great on a larger TV screen when I rewatched it with my wife. Lastly, I’d be remiss not to give the camera work another mention – the super slow zoom-ins in particular were mesmerizing. Defintely check it out!
